Dr. Chen has been awesome throughout this process. I'm so pleased with my new tummy! At 56, I know there's only so much you can do to make a more youthful outcome, but Dr. Chen did a wonderful job!

Dr. Chen was great and I was happy with the time he took in reviewing my sizing options. I felt confident he could handle my surgery and give me the look I was looking for.
4 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
Dr Chen is an excellent surgeon and I highly recommend him. I felt he knew exactly what he was doing and wanted me to have the best outcome. My overall rating is a 4 out of 5 because I am not sure about the outcome of the underneath the breast but I will update in the months to come.
